Internet Tax Suggested by Microsoft Exec
One day after Microsoft announced they were investigating new vulnerabilities in their Windows operating system, one of their executives was at the RSA conference in San Francisco suggesting a tax on all Internet users as an attempt to curtail the spread of malware.
The proposal was likened to the current health plan model that is being pushed in the United States, a social model where everyone pays for the good of the whole.
Certain questions immediately come to mind, like do Linux or Mac users really want to pay tax to help cure the malware ailments that most often come as a result of vulnerabilities in the Windows? What do you think?
